Unlike loans, scholarships never have to be paid back. They are a great way to help pay for college. Performance-based scholarships not only assist with your financial needs, they are a reward for your hard work and distinguish you as an outstanding student.
Scholarships are available from a variety of sources; therefore, you need to be resourceful and initiate the process early each year. Typically, scholarship recipients are selected in the spring (February through May) for the upcoming academic year.
NDSCS offers a general academic NDSCS Scholarship. You can automatically qualify if the following criteria are met:
An ACT score of 25 combined with a 3.6 GPA = $1,000
An ACT score in-between 22-25 with a GPA in the 3.2-3.6 range = $500
Returning students who have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher are especially encouraged to apply.
NDSCS Scholarship Application priority deadline is December 1.
